about

The Anxieties Portland

The Anxieties are a four-piece punk rock band formed in Eugene, but now based in Portland, Oregon. Dusted Magazine called us "garage rockin' punk, mad scientist-core for the paranoid and suspicious" and that sounds about right to me.

Track Name: Blank Stares
Blank stares, are all I've got for you...
Blank stares, are all you'll get from me...
Blank stares, are all I've got for you...
Blank stares, are all you'll get from me...
Blank stares!

Blank stares, got nothing to say to you...
Blank stares, every time you talk to me...
Blank stares, got nothing to say to you...
Blank stares, every time you talk to me...
Blank stares!
Track Name: Escape From The 5th Dimension
Well down is up, up is down
I'm hearing color, seeing sound
Can't keep my feet on the ground
Don't think I wanna hang around

We gotta escape, from the 5th dimension

For now we're here to stay
Because of the machine I made
Don't think I like it this way
That's why we gotta escape
Track Name: Under Surveillance
They got me, yeah they got me, they got me under surveillance...

I don't know who, and I don't know why
But I look out my window and I see them outside
Pick up my phone, and I hear a weird hum,
Big Brother's got me under his thumb

I see those cameras in the street, and I hang my head in defeat
I see those cameras in the store, and I don't think I can take it no more
I know someone is reading my mail, I try and catch 'em, but I always fail
Who was that , did you just see? I swear that car is following me

There's a van parked down the street from my residence,
Reporting my daily routine to the President
We can't talk here, it isn't safe
We can't talk here, it isn't safe
Track Name: Radio Silence
Gotta maintain, gotta maintain radio silence...

Got to shut communications down
Before the word gets out all over town
This frequency is not secure, we can't be sure they haven't heard
I know they've got their ears pressed to the ground

Gotta maintain, gotta maintain radio silence...

If they found out what we've been up to
There's no telling things that they might do
Got to keep it incognito, under radar, laying low
Can't risk the information getting through
Track Name: Telepathy
Every day I wish that I couldn't hear you
But it's ringing in my brain every time that I'm near you
I can read your thoughts & I can read your mind
Feels like it's happening all of the time
You're broadcasting signals can't you change the frequency?
I use telepathy...

I don't think I belong in this place
What's in your head isn't showing on your face
I hear you wonder why I look so strange
Your private thoughts are plain to see inside my brain
I wish you could lock me out but I've got the key
I use telepathy...

It's got a catch, it's got a catch,
It's a curse, it's not a gift...

Tapped into the collective unconscious
There doesn't seem to be a way for me to ignore this
It just isn't fair, it just isn't right
Waking me up when I'm asleep at night
Too much on my mind, there's no vacancy
I use telepathy...
Track Name: Tick Tick
Tick, tick, ticking like a timebomb in my heart
Tick, tick, ticking like a timebomb, and I'm gonna get blown apart
Tick, tick, ticking like a timebomb in my head
Tick, tick, ticking like a timebomb and I know that I'll end up dead

I can hear the timer counting down, don't know how long I've got
I want to cut the wires but I don't know where to start
Back & forth I pace the floor, oh how long can I last?
I know it's not "if", but "when" I'm gonna feel the blast

Hours, minutes, seconds left, just how long I can't tell
Wouldn't do me any good, so I guess it's just as well
So back & forth I pace the floor, oh how long can I last?
I know it's not "if", but "when" I'm gonna feel the blast
Track Name: In Stasis
I think I want to be frozen in carbonite
Wake me up when everything is alright
World around me just giving me the creeps
I don't wanna do nothing, I just wanna go to sleep now

In stasis! !n stasis! I just don't think that I can take this
In stasis! !n stasis! I don't think I can take this anymore

Everything I see is so pathetic
Make it go away with general anesthetic
All around me just confusion and hate
The only solution is hibernate now
Track Name: Friday Night
I'm gonna be with you on Friday night, I'd rather be with her on Saturday, right. I got a wandering eye, and if knew you'd surely die, you know that I'll be true cause baby, I love you.

I wanna be with you, I wanna be with you, I wanna be with you or maybe her...well, I don't know...cause I'm a jerk.

I'm gonna wake up next to you in bed, I'd rather wake up next to her instead. Well that's my situation, and it's causing me frustration, but know that I'll be true, cause baby I love you...

I wanna be with you, I wanna be with you, I wanna be with you or maybe her...well, I don't know...cause I'm a jerk
Track Name: Panic Room
In the panic room...in the panic room...

Locked inside this room is where I'll stay
These walls will keep the outside world at bay
My haven has all I could ever need
Isolation that I'll never leave

Barricaded here inside my home
Solitary world to call my own
Screens show me the world as it goes by
I can't relate so I won't even try
Track Name: Sideshow Freak
You look like at me like a sideshow freak, yeah
And you treat me like a circus geek, yeah
Go ahead & point and laugh now
Someday you're gonna face my wrath now

You look at me like I'm a pinhead
And you treat me just like you want me dead
You look at me like I'm insane
Well, I look at you & I fell the same

Like a sideshow, like a sideshow freak

You look at me like a bearded lady
Do it all the time & it drives me crazy
Think you got the answers like a fortune teller
Want to keep me locked in the cellar

You think I'm a fake like the Fiji Mermaid
Try & tear me down like it's some kinda crusade
Think you run the show like the ringmaster
This is gonna end up in disaster
Track Name: Plan Zero
Plan Zero (X 12)...
